  • The steps to retire with the WRS
  • The impact of your contributions and investment returns on your account
  • When you can retire
  • Your WRS annuity options
  • About returning to work after you retire
  • What happens to your account when you die

Live, Interactive Webinars

No need to drive to the presentation—watch a live, interactive webinar from the comfort of your home. The webinars are conducted by a WRS specialist with time for questions afterward. You must register for the webinars: sign up with an email address to attend. Registration is free and fast.

Note that live, online webinars are offered every other week throughout the year.

Please note: Every other month, the live webinar will be held during the workday rather than in the evening.
